In May 2018 I spent 12 consecutive days drawing in John O'Groats Mill.  The Mill has been in the same family since 1750. The current building dates from 1901. The last corn was milled in 2001 by Magnus Houston. Inspired by the large (door size) now rusty sieves, I designed a chiffon scarf which incorporated 27 of my 62 pen and ink drawings. 

Thanks to Rognvald Brown and Sina Houston for access to the Mill.

It’s almost 2 years since lichens first caught my attention while artist-in-residence at Sumburgh Head Lighthouse in Shetland, and they continue to inspire and intrigue like a good thriller!  I get lost in research, reading of the wolf lichen, apparently […]
